  • Her is our thread relating to this film:
    Classic War Movies- Sahara

    I reread some fo the stuff in that thread and noticed that one of their so-called "Goofs" is not really a goof. This is to do with the German helmets worn in the movie as well as were used in many war movies before the end of WWII being WWI German lids--true to an extent but--in Sahara--you can clearly see that many if not all of the German lids--were TRANSITIONAL lids and those still had gas mask lugs on their sides.

    Just thought I would point that out ;-))

  • The Longships w/ Richard Widmark, Russ Tamblyn and Sidney Poitier. Loved the movie from the first viewing.

    A nice combat scene:

  • Breakthrough wJohn Agar, David Brian, Frank Lovejoy and Paul Picerni. A VERY well made movie with a great cast and all around--this movie might be considered lesser status than a mega-blockbuster-but--THESE folks who made this movie didnt have much help with all that that goes on in todays so-call movie-making business.

  • Act of Valor.
    I was expecting much, much more from this.
    They have tried to dramatise real-life, hugely powerful scenarios only to reduce them to Michael Bay, gung ho antics. The action sequence are fantastic but I was left feeling that, ironically, the film makers had demeaned the very people and exploits they were trying to applaud.

  • "The Ides of March" with George Clooney about a Democratic primary race that becomes corrupt. Fun to hear Clooney, as a candidate, spout Democratic talking points as his character's platform. Surprisingly, for George, both campaigns and the press are corrupt.

    We deal in lead, friend.

  • "Behind Enemy Lines". Exciting war story starring Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson. Also has some great music.

    Apparently based partly on a true story.
